The Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County is pleased to announce the opening of a new Club in Brewster, WA. A meet and greet will take place on March 20, and doors will open on March 23. The Club will be located at 601 West Cliff Avenue in Brewster, next to the City Pool. Facilities include a gymnasium, multi-purpose room, and game center. Power Hour, Triple Play, High Yield Learning, Torch Club, and healthy snacks will be available in the afternoons to all members. A variety of summer day camps will be offered. The Brewster Club will provide after-school enrichment programs from 2:50pm to 6:00pm Monday through Friday, and 11:00am to 6:00pm on non-school days. The Club will be closed weekends.
“Opening the Club in Brewster is such a positive addition to this community,” remarked April Ashworth, Brewster Club Unit Director. “We are so fortunate to have the backing and sponsors to bring this Club to our town. This is a great opportunity for our kids!”
The hallmark of Boys & Girls Clubs is to help young people ages 5-18 to achieve academic success, live healthy and active lifestyles, and develop good character and leadership skills. The Clubs offer kids a safe and positive place to spend their time before and after school and during the summer.
Jon Wyss, Government Affairs for Gebbers Farms, commented “After four years of hard work to bring a Boys & Girls Club to Brewster, and in the wake of the devastating Carlton Complex Fire, the opening of the Club gives a ray of sunshine and hope for recovery. The Club will provide kids throughout the area with a safe place to grow, play, and learn.”
Memberships will be accepted for the new Club beginning Monday, February 23. Club memberships are $30 annually, and scholarships are available. Forms are available at the Brewster schools, which can be returned with payment to the Brewster Elementary or High School offices. Forms can also be mailed to PO Box 2054, Brewster, WA. 98812. For more information, please call the Brewster Boys & Girls Club at (509) 689-1192.
Interest in the Boys & Girls Club began with Badges for Baseball clinics organized in partnership with the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and local law enforcement teaching kids about making good choices.
A formal ribbon cutting/dedication will be announced at a later date.
